The 'Cetus' is a fast cruiser designed as a load carrier. It has become the natural choice for paddlers looking for a stable expedition platform or a fast, easy to paddle boat for long distance paddles. However it's not just a boat for long trips though, it's equally as capable being used as a fast day cruiser. The Cetus sees a resurrection of a concept we were playing around with ten years ago: the fourth hatch in easy reach in front of your cockpit. It's proving more and more popular with paddlers who want somewhere quick and easy to reach to stow a camera or day gear when things are getting a bit rougher.
In 2011, the original Cetus was adjusted to create the new Cetus HV. Its volume was been increased, redistributed and balanced in certain areas to give larger paddlers more knee and foot room with an increased carrying capacity. This also allowed P&H to fine tune the seat position to improve tracking and give more neutral and predictable handling.
- Expedition capable: The load carrier of choice, the Cetus lets you travel self-supported in comfort with the four hatches it has plenty of storage for equipment.
- Effortless distance: The length and 'shallow V-hull' add up to a fast, efficient boat that won't take any time at all to reach the horizon.
- Easy to paddle: The fairly wide hull means rock-solid stability whether you're travelling loaded or not.

The Cetus is really a work of art... I had a chance to paddle this boat last spring and I have to say that it was an amazing experience. It tracks amazingly well and is quite maneuverable for it's length. Enough space for long overnights, island hoping, and many more adventures. Definitely worth a look if you are looking for a new ocean/touring boat!
